I am very pleased to welcome you to the Devon, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Resilience Forum (LRF) website.

This website offers information for local residents and communities, visitors to the area and businesses, on preparations for, and responses to, emergencies and major incidents within Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The LRF aims to plan and prepare for localised incidents and catastrophic emergencies. We work together to identify potential risks and produce emergency plans to either prevent or mitigate the impact of any incident on our local communities. Examples of some of the major emergencies we deal with: the consequences of severe weather such as the snow and ice; flooding; unexploded bombs (Plymouth); and the swine flu pandemic.Assistant Chief Constable for Devon & Cornwall Constabulary Paul Netherton

This site, contains regularly updated information on the LRF, details on how you can prepare for an emergency and what we will do to keep you fully informed.

I hope that our communities of Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly find this website both useful and informative.
